I forgot password for screen lock on ipod


The only way I can think of is by connecting it to iTunes and trying to restore it. If that fails, maybe try updating it to the most recent iOS for your generation of device.

Forgotten password


Hello All!

I had the same problem, my officemate came to me and asked formy help, her nephew tinkered on her ipod nano and set the passcode, and did not remember what it was.

the ipod nano can be unlocked when connected to the computer with itunes but, if you want to change the passcode to a new one it will ask for the old code which i dont have. even if you reset all the settings to factory default setting it will not reset.

this is a little hard for some of you to follow, but, to totally remove the unknown old code this is what i've done:
first, sync your music to your PC so that you have a backup of all your music. Second, make sure enable disk use is checked. third, format your IPOD. This sounds nut but this did the trick.

after doing this, check if you can set a new passcode to the screen lock, you should be able to do it. and please dont forget the new passcode. I hope this helps.

Reset password


Unfortunately, if you have forgotten the password, the only way to reset it is through a system Restore via iTunes, which will erase all songs. But your password will then be reset to no password.

Locked it by accident


After completing the following, your iPod will become a password recovery disk, which will allow recovering your system password in case you get locked out. Note: This tutorial is only works for WinXP. Required Items:
  • Windows XP Home/Pro
  • iPod Nano or iPod Video
  • USB-iPod Connection Cable
Set Up Procedure:
1) Connect your iPod to your machine and verify that it appears as a standard drive in "My Computer". (ex: "Joe's iPod (G:)")
Note: If it doesn't appear and you have iTunes Installed, make sure "disk use" is enabled.
2) Go To Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Select Your Account -> Related Tasks - > "Prevent a forgotten password". A Wizard should appear.
3) Select Your iPod's Drive Name -> Enter Current Password -> Finish Once complete your iPod should be setup as a password recovery disk. Do not delete the "userkey" file, which you may see when browsing your iPod's contents. To test your recovery disk do a quick Log Off and try logging in with an incorrect password. Select "use password reset disk". Then proceed and select your iPod's drive name. If all goes well it should you will be allowed to create a new password
